Statement by the founder of Free Republic
Free Republic ^ | Jim Robinson

Posted on 03/22/2004 6:22:17 PM PST by Jim Robinson

I posted the following statement to our front page in response to the criticism I'm receiving lately as to not being fair and balanced and perceived mistreatment of trolls and assorted malcontents. Got news for all, I'm NOT fair and balanced. I'm biased toward God, country, family, liberty and freedom and against liberalism, socialism, anarchism, wackoism, global balonyism and any other form of tyranny. Hope this helps.


Statement by the founder of Free Republic:

In our continuing fight for freedom, for America and our constitution and against totalitarianism, socialism, tyranny, terrorism, etc., Free Republic stands firmly on the side of right, i.e., the conservative side. Believing that the best defense is a strong offense, we (myself and those whom I'm trying to attract to FR) support the strategy of taking the fight to the enemy as opposed to allowing the enemy the luxury of conducting their attacks on us at home on their terms and on their schedule.

Therefore, we wholeheartedly support the Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive strikes on known terrorist states and organizations that are believed to present a clear threat to our freedom or national security. We support our military, our troops and our Commander-in-Chief and we oppose turning control of our government back over to the liberals and socialists who favor appeasement, weakness, and subserviency. We do not believe in surrendering to the terrorists as France, Germany, Russia and Spain have done and as Kerry, Kennedy, Clinton and the Democrats, et al, are proposing.

As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc. We also oppose the United Nations or any other world government body that may attempt to impose its will or rule over our sovereign nation and sovereign people. We believe in defending our borders, our constitution and our national sovereignty.

Free Republic is private property. It is not a government project, nor is it funded by government or taxpayer money. We are not a publicly owned entity nor are we an IRS tax-free non-profit organization. We pay all applicable taxes on our income. We are not connected to or funded by any political party, news agency, or any other entity. We sell no merchandise, product or service, and we offer no subscriptions or paid memberships. We accept no paid advertising or promotions. We are funded solely by donations (non tax deductible gifts) from our readers and participants.

We aggressively defend our God-given and first amendment guaranteed rights to free speech, free press, free religion, and freedom of association, as well as our constitutional right to control the use and content of our own personal private property. Despite the wailing of the liberal trolls and other doom & gloom naysayers, we feel no compelling need to allow them a platform to promote their repugnant and obnoxious propaganda from our forum. Free Republic is not a liberal debating society. We are conservative activists dedicated to defending our rights, defending our constitution, defending our republic and defending our traditional American way of life.

Our God-given liberty and freedoms are not negotiable.

May God bless and protect our men and women in uniform fighting for our freedom and may God continue to bless America.

Jim Robinson

One thing I have found is that there are various stripes of conservatives, and we can all meet here and talk, thanks to JimRobinson.

On the other hand, there are folks who have no business posting on an obviously conservative site. They really should be at DUmmies or in some sort of program. But I repeat myself.
Another subset simply love to start a fight. I think these latter are as disruptive to the site as the YoungBolsheviks are.
They tend to really get mad at Jim and the Admins, and so I ask the question..."If the other kids keep picking on you, why do you keep going into their backyard?"

We can, (and do) argue about immigration, legalization, and salvation, but almost all of us come from a fairly conservative angle. This being the case, we can respectfully disagree. Other folks really need to step away from the keyboard.

Well-said and we support you completely! If the liberal trolls want a place to post their bilge they can head over to Demo Armpit or, er, whatever the name of that benighted little "underground" forum is!
Thank you! Free Republic is the best!

Best site on the net for news and the conservative point of view.

It helps a lot of conservative think tanks, talk show hosts, and political strategists that get a lot of ideas from this site.

LOL, go get 'em, Jim! I like FR just the way it is, thank you very much.

You know, you can go through your post word for word and substitute antonyms for all the things you say FR stands for and get a very, very good description of what the democrats stand for. It's amazing any human being could fall for it. Makes no sense at all to me. It's totally self-defeating and self-destructive.

Long live FR!

This site would be worthless if none of us had anything in common. There may be disagreements here, but not generally about the principles you cite, which makes our discussions more meaningful.

The only scary part is how addictive this site is. One stop shopping for what is going on in the world.

From an earlier thread today about an article in "The Telegraph": "France's intellectuals have accused the government of being philistine. "

Philistine: "a person who is smugly insensitive or indifferent to intellectual values."

Mr. Robinson,

One can only imagine the crucial nature of a forum such as this austere home on the web you have provided.

Even I can support the statement you made.

On the other hand, the affluence of wealthy low-tax-paying business men such as yourself should be tapped so that the government can assure the same opportunity to underfunded trolls.

In closing, did I mention I was in Vietnam?

Ya know! I'm not even seeing the crap you are and I'm sick of seeing the explaination.

Fact. If you, Mr/Ms. Troll do not like this man's forum, get out.

Please stop whinning and go back to DU, LP or whatever hole you came from.

I love it here because most of us do not cry and whine like babies.

We conservatives need to stop being concerned about hurting liberals feelings or being too polite to tell them what we really think. When I see a fellow conservative, unashamed and unafraid, it gives me strength to kick a little liberal butt myself!
